On the afternoon of October 9th, 2011, the Long Beach Firefighter’s Memorial Association hosted the annual Firefighter Picnic at Gemrig Park. This picnic has been a long-standing tradition dating back to the 1960’s. The Memorial Association is comprised of Long Beach Fire Department members that volunteer their time to stage events like this and the annual fireworks show. The founding members started the organization long ago to promote a few social gatherings throughout the year with the intent of building camaraderie and family togetherness within the Department.
The picnic has been well attended over the years by many of our Department members of all generations. Great food, fun games, and giant bounce houses are some of the many reasons for the great turnouts. A big thank you to all of the memorial volunteers that worked hard to put this event together.
